Poem: Winter’s Wrap

Winter’s Wrap

(February 21, 2015)



Freezing rain

Rain frozen

Now a sheet of ice


More snow

Lubricating the ice

Down I go

On my tail

Do I have a tail?


Dogs slipping

Cars slipping

Children sledding

And slipping


New snow

A winter wonderland

Evening falls

Wind blows

Snow flies from the trees

Is this new snow?

The night sky is clear.

So clear.



Caught in

The Siberian express


No reprieve

This February

Go away winter!

No stay.


How can winter’s wrap be

So cold . . .

And cozy?
